Does anyone know what typeface was used for the single band nametag (i.e ALDRIN) found above the ILC label on the inside of the cuff of the A7L EVA gloves? Any thoughts greatly appreciated!

I cover this on the beta cloth page of my CrewPatches.com site.

In most cases they used what looks to be Futura condensed typeface, but there are a few exceptions where Phenix American was used instead.
